    Man the only sympathy you should have for Norman Osborn is that he's totally insane and really never going to get proper treatment because he'll be a villain forever

    He really seemed like a good guy at heart! I was kinda rooting for him almost.

    Careful Arivia! Get too emotional for Osborn and you'll end up having his super aging babies and get tossed off a bridge!

    It happened in the 90's.

    So no. Lets never mention it again.

    hahahaha you think it happened in the 90s
    The story arc "Sins Past" by J. Michael Straczynski in The Amazing Spider-Man #509-514 (August 2004 - January 2005) reveals that Norman Osborn, the Green Goblin's alter ego, fathered twins, a boy and a girl, with Gwen Stacy, to whom she gave birth while in France shortly before her death. She vowed she would raise them with Peter Parker (Spider-Man) and, seeing Norman's disregard for his sick son Harry, refused to allow Norman access to them.
    Seeing her as a threat to his potential heirs, the Green Goblin killed Gwen Stacy. Norman Osborn then raised Gwen's two children, a boy and a girl named Gabriel and Sarah. Due to Norman's enhanced blood, the twins aged about 2-3 times faster than normal and became adults within the span of a few years (they are speculated to be between 5 to 9 years old). Osborn told them that Peter was really their father and was responsible for their mother's death.

    That's it.

    I'm burning the past down.

    All of it. Don't care if it doesn't make sense.

    Seriously though lets not discuss this.

    JMS still wrote some of the best Spider-Man stories with JRjr as his artist.

    I wanted to update you guys on my digital code saga.

    Apparently the marvel chrome store is just super broken. They told me it will take "about 30 days" to fix it, which makes me wonder if they're actually planning to just launch an upgraded/new version around the time AvX1 hits.

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    I told you the Chrome store is just abysmal all around!

    So, about this?
    So no. Lets never mention it again.

    Anyway, I'll just check Wikipedia because I want no part of this.

    BTW, is anyone planning on getting Avengers: Hulk Smash?

    Seriously, don't mock me by saying you arrested 3,300 super terrorists and then not show a Burly Man fight.

    It's Bendis. He does that sometimes.

    It's brawls like that wouldn't have been very good anyway. He's better at fights with a small group, preferably two or three. When he starts writing group battles it devolves into pure chaos.

    You say that like it's a bad thing.

    At least there is on-page fighting in his event books. *Ahem*

    In this weeks Avengers

    Tony actually said "who's missing"

    And the response was "The Vision"

    Guys, your team has another member. He wears black and white and is from space.

    Then he turns up for two panels

    THE PRESIDENT GOT MORE LINES THAN PROTECTOR

    A.I.MS CHIEF RESEARCHER GOT MORE LINES THAN PROTECTOR

  • BlankZoeBlankZoe Registered User regular
    To be fair

    Protector was pretty vital to actually beating Obsorn

    It's a bad thing when the team are veteran super-heroes, some leaders have vast experience with strategies (Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Janet Pym, Black Widow etc) and worked together before.

    I didn't see Carol.

    I did read his line about his DNA not mixing well, but then the New Avengers arrive on the next page.

    Anyway, I wanted a giant brawl, tactics be damned. Sometimes I just want a little chaos.

  • nightmarennynightmarenny Registered User regular
    Yeah this was pretty lackluster.

    Did like Spider-mans one line though.

    Norman got rid of it, he had the A.I.M. lady science it away for her.

    If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten in your presence.

    They said it smelled bad. Can't have foul smelling squid hats when you're trying to evil up the world.
